BRIER — Brier Terrace Middle School briefly went into lockdown Monday afternoon when a student reportedly threatened a school shooting.
School officials took the safety precaution immediately after another student reported the remarks around 1:45 p.m.
Brier police arrived shortly after. The student who made the threat wasn’t on the campus. Police soon determined it was safe to lift the lockdown in time for the regularly scheduled release time at 2:30 p.m.
Anyone with more information about the incident is encouraged to contact the school.
“School safety is a top priority,” assistant superintendant Greg Schwab and principal Scott Morrison wrote in an email. “We commend and thank our students and staff for staying calm and behaving well during the lockdown.”
